1 orange, zest and juice (100ml), plus 100ml water

50ml brandy

1 dessert apple, small, grated

1 free-range egg, large, beaten

1 tbsp black treacle


  • Put the dried fruit, orange zest, juice and water into a large mixing bowl, microwave on full power for 3 minutes.
  • Pour over the brandy, cover and leave to soak in a cool place for 2hrs to allow the flavours to develop.
  • Add the grated apple, breadcrumbs, mixed spice, sugar and nuts, mix together with a wooden spoon, add the suet in 3 batches and stir well after each batch, then add the egg and treacle and mix again not forgetting to make your wish!
  • Grease a 1.2 lt (2pt) plastic pudding basin. Spoon the mixture into the prepared basin and level with the back of a spoon. Cover the top loosely with clingfilm, leaving a small hole for breathing. Cook on medium 10 minutes, stand for five minutes then cook on medium for a further 8 -10 minutes, if eating immediately stand for a further two minutes or when cold wrap in clingfilm and foil and store in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. (Cooking times may vary according to the type of basin and microwave).
